There is a pain,
Lurking inside,
Awakening now and then,
To lines of a favorite song,
Sentences of a treasured book,
Glimpses of a beautiful weather,
Bouts of trying situations, 
Moments of blank staring phases,
A pain that has lasted long enough,
That it’s a part of me,
A pain that I have begun to welcome,
That makes me smile with acknowledgement,
A pain that defies its definition,
That’s sometimes my only comprehending companion,
A pain that is you,
And a you that I have not yet defined completely.
